Clemson QB Cade Klubnik approves of the changes being made by new Tigers offensive coordinator Garrett Riley. Klubnik highlighted the speed and simplicity of the system after Monday’s practice.

Klubnik called the new Clemson efficient and productive when speaking to reporters after practice. According to Klubnik, the Tigers focused on just 15 plays in Monday’s practice. He indicated the gameday call sheet will shrink from 80 plays to 30 under Riley.

The second-year quarterback said the new offense under Riley could look like a familiar foe.

Klubnik said the Tigers hope to play as fast as Tennessee did last season.

Tennessee found success in quick strikes off of explosive plays in 2022. In the Orange Bowl, the Vols ran fewer plays than the Tigers (66 to 101) and held the ball longer (23:37 to 36:23), but won 31-14. In FEI efficiency rankings, Tennessee was No. 4 (1.80 OFEI) while Riley’s TCU team was No. 12 (1.05 OFEI) and Clemson was No. 49 (0.25).

A simpler, faster-moving offense with more big plays would be welcomed by many Tiger fans.
